Midwest Symposium

The Midwest Symposium is a wonderful opportunity for students seeking a career in veterinary medicine.
Participants will have the opportunity to attend various lectures and hands-on wet labs conducted by experienced veterinary professionals. Tours of the ISU College of Veterinary Medicine will also be offered. The Symposium is held every even-numbered year.

The next MWS is October 26nd, 2024!



We provide volunteer opportunities to gain clinical skills and experience with critical foals and mares in the ICU. Volunteering will take place at the ISU Equine Hospital during the spring semester.



Boo Radley Foundation

Retrieving Freedom 

Throughout the year, this committee organizes events in support of the Retretrieving Freedom Incorporation. These efforts include monthly collections of cans from a designated white box next to Lush Auditorium in Kildee Hall and organizing fundraisers at nearby food establishments, with all funds raised being donated to Retrieving Freedom. As part of our commitment to raising awareness for this organization, we invite a representative from Retrieving Freedom to join us once a year to share insights into their mission.
